Key executives of National Australia Bank have been criticised in the financial services royal commission’s final report, including CEO Andrew Thorburn and chairman Ken Hendry. Commissioner Kenneth Hayne says the appearances of Thorburn and Henry before the inquiry raised questions as whether NAB had learnt from its past mistakes with regard to the fee-for-no-service scandal. However, Hayne noted that the evidence of Commonwealth Bank CEO Matt Comyn and ANZ counterpart Shayne Elliott showed that they understand the challenges that their banks face.
